Dunnottar Castle
📍 United Kingdom
Dunnottar Castle is an iconic clifftop ruin located in Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom, on the North Sea coast. The castle is a fortified complex of buildings constructed between the 12th and 18th centuries, and is known for its picturesque ruins, stunning views and incredible history. It was at Dunnottar that the crown jewels of Scotland were hidden from Oliver Cromwell’s invading army in 1652. Historically significant, it was used as a royal fortress and a prison at various times in its past. Today it is managed by Historic Scotland and is open to the public. Its cliff-top cliff faces are the only visible sections of a structure that is largely hidden from view beneath the grassy mound. The views of the sea from the battlements are breathtaking. You can also explore the ancient site itself, which includes a tobacco factory, William Wallace monument, chapel, and many other archaeological sites. Dunnottar Castle is a must-visit for any traveler or photographer - a perfect piece of Scotland’s distant past.
